Green Sky

So, we had some weather yesterday evening. The county just north of us had a tornado warning and we (Vicki and I) were watching as this nasty storm went ripping by. At one point the sky turned a pale green. I'd heard of this but never seen it before. It is really strange and spooky looking. Supposedly it is caused by light being refracted by ice crystals in the clouds or something like that. It's a bad thing to see, since it usually means there's some bad storms near by.

Back in SoCal...

But only for about 24 hours. I actually flew to California to see my doctor. Why didn't I just see a doctor in Illinois? I'm not insured in Illinois. So, since I can fly for free (thanks Vicki!) it's cheaper to fly out here and see my doctor. Weird, huh?

I can honestly say I don't miss much about California. Just two things: my friends and my DSL line.

Damn skaters!

You know that hockey rink behind my sisters house? It's not a hockey rink anymore. Some workers came and put permanent metal ramps in today. It is a skate rink. Sad thing is that the 'half pipe' isn't even a full half pipe. Weak.

Do cats have shame?

Aparently not. This is Mork. He and his sister (yup, Mindy) get these silly cat hair cuts every summer. It's funny as hell.

Tornado Warning

A couple of Sundays ago at 9:00AM the Huntley Tornado Warning Alarm went through a practice run. It was LOUD. I was reminded of the air-raid sirens that used to go off once a month in Santa Ana when I was a kid (back in the cold war days). It does not quite sound the same, though. And there is a blaring loud speaker that said 'This is only a test...' so I didn't think much of it.

That is until we heard it last night. For real. The weather was really bad, thunder, lightning, high winds, lots of rain. And, aparently, funnel clouds. Yippee! We grabbed the animals and headed for the basement for an hour or so until the warning expired. Nothing else happened but it was certainly an interesting experience.

"Dangerous and disturbing this is."

Okay, this is the funniest thing in the world (to me). Go get your tape of 'The Empire Strikes Back' (you do own the original trilogy, don't you?) and find the scene where Luke is training with Yoda and Yoda is telling him about the dark side and how it will corrupt you, etc. Just after Yoda tells Luke to clear his mind of questions I swear it looks like Yoda is dry humping Luke's back and going "Mmmm..." It's even funnier if you fast forward or rewind through the scene, 'cause you can see it faster. Hoo, boy! That's entertainment!

Even funnier is that Vicki has one of those talking Yoda things that you ask questions and he says stuff, kind of like a Magic 8 Ball. She asked it if he was pleasuring himself on Luke's back and he said no. But then I asked if he was humping Luke's back and he said yes! So he was humping Luke's back, he just didn't enjoy it! Bwaa ha ha!!!
